Mobile device security continues to be an essential ingredient in any size business. Both as an enabler for employees to participate in the powerful social business and consumer platforms for sales, service and business development; and to insure the bad actors do not get access to your business data and networks. This remains a constant effort.
Security exists on two tiers – one for the individual device owner – and two for the business itself. We’ve discussed individual security best practices many times before (linked below) and also add on some business tools that can be used in the small and large organization.
Key areas remain protecting access to the device (the pin, passcode or swipe to open) and encrypting data that is stored on devices or backups stored in the cloud or on computers we sync with.
